Forum: GratefulDead Subject: is Deal "nailed" anywhere on LMA?

Is "Deal" considered top-40? I feel it's a showcase tune for the Dead. I'm sensitive to bands being loved-to-death, and always pressed to perform the favorites, leading up to burn-out. The Forum here was just discussing this issue in the "Jerry Question." Fact is I also have a passionate fondness for Deal. Like Sugaree and some other tunes, I've enjoyed the boys performing these stellar classics in their extended versions during later years.

When I examine a Dead show on LMA I look at the setlist first. I'll sample a few tunes selectively. Which ones depends on what year. Best Deal I found thus far (early years version) is this sbd from Live at Assembly Hall, Univ. of Il. on 1973-02-22




Anybody know any outrageous Deal performances here on LMA?

Bob Hunter and Jerry Garcia

Though not the best "Deal" ever, this version from Nashville in 1978 would qualify as outrageous. I saw this show and this Deal about blew the top of my skull off when they repeated the "don't ya let that deal go down" chorus 43 times!! The sound quality of this aud leaves something to be desired, but is worth a listen anyway. 43 times is probably some kind of record..

"dead-head_Monte:" ..it looks like you are all set with recommendations regarding "Deal." (Lake Placid keeps showing up, doesn't it?)

Hey, are you familiar with a weekend festival from 1974: Marin County Bluegrass Festival? (April 27 & 28). Basically everybody was there. Enough music to fill 4 CD's. Amongst countless notable items, it appears that your buddy, John Hartford, joined Jerry for a few tunes during the New Riders set.

If you or anybody else is interested in more details about where to get the music, send me an email: Jerri1031-dp3 AT yahooDOTcom
